Good location, friendly helpful staff with plenty of maps and guides and lots of information on Kyoto and what was good to see and how to get around.

ถือว่าเหมาะสมกะราคา ไม่แคบอย่างที่คิด สะอาด พนักงานช่วยเหลือดีมากมีน้ำใจ แต่เดินไกลจากสถานีเกียวโต ก็คิดว่าเดินชมบ้านเมืองเค้าละกันค่ะ แม้จะพักmix dormแต่ก็เหมือนprivate เพราะแกงส์เราเหมายกห้อง สรุปคือ ดีที่ถูก สะอาด เสียที่ เดินไกลเตรียมกำลังขาไปด้วยค่ะ

My boyfriend and I enjoyed staying at the hostel, although we didn't stay very long. While not unusual it would have been nice to have a padlock provided for luggage (although it felt safe). Although we were staying in a dorm it didn't seem like it was too easy to meet people, the hostel was pretty quiet - which in a way was good for sleeping. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Awesome hostel - super clean, awesome location, great staff, comfortable - there really isn't anything to complain about. Can't really go wrong staying at this hostel.

Amazing hostel with fantastic amenities, including rooftop patio! Found it strange however that this hostel was more like a hotel than a hostel: full families with children were staying there which took away from the backpacker atmosphere. Nonetheless, I would recommend this hostel because of it's cleanliness, staff, security, and amenities.

The washing machine and the cloth dryer are broken,finding a laundromat nearby is a better solution and it's waste your time waiting for them getting fixed.

I've stayed at K's house Kyoto 4 times now and multiple times at other K's houses. The first time was before the new section was built and that was the best. I feel like since the new part was built the hostel has lost a lot of the charm that draws me to Ks house, which is the atmosphere and staff. Because the hostel is so big now there doesn't seem to be the ability to meet new people as easily. Maybe if you were to put more activities on? The movie night didn't even run the time we were there.

Great hostel - love k's! Nice rooms nice location. Big reception with a lot of staff ready to help you. Restaurant right next to the reception with nice breakfast buffet. Bit confusing and annoying when you have to change rooms, so book in advance to avoid that :)

Very clean, nice staff and good common areas but somehow hardly any interaction with other people.. people seemed to be in groups (families, couples, groups of friends) and in no need to mingle ór in need to check their mobiles the entire evening. Perhaps organising some joined activities would be a good idea (there was supposed to be a movie nights but I never saw a movie running...)?

I stayed in K's in the beginning of April 2014 and I must say that this was one of the best hostels I stayed in Japan. The staff is amazingly helpful. The rooms, facilities and bathrooms are unbelievably clean. Location is good, just a 15 minutes by walk from the train station and just a few minutes by walk to the nearest bus stop, which can take you anywhere around Kyoto. In the hostel you can find a board with recommendations where to go, what to try to eat, etc.
